's democratic party. what you here from barack obama, harry reid, nancy pelosi, dick durban is not lowering all tax rates to get economic growth. you have a modern democratic party that is so far to the left that they believe in sunday amount alley anti-american concepts of radical wealth redistribution in order to equalize everyone. that is not what america is all b. the leading party that is leading the country in terms of the white house and congress really believes that by force, i don't mean by military force like the old school communist and social lists did, but by force of the tax code and redistribution of policies like obamacare they intend to force that on the american people. megyn: keurs te megyn: durbin chose two good people to make that example of. people don't love and reveer the hedge fund manager, they make other people a lot of money and they make a lot of money but most people have respect for our navy seals. is he on point? >> i do think he's on point. what monica just said, radical redistribution, we are talking about the radical redistribution is going back to the clinton

that they don't even talk about that. host: senator durban from illinois, let's look and his comments on abc yesterday. he is talking about what democrats would be willing to do to avoid the fiscal cliff. [video clip] >> social security does not add one penny to our debt, not a penny. it is a separate-funded operation. we can do things now, smaller things, played out over the long term, that gives its solvency. medicare, only 12 years of solvency lie ahead if we do not think. those who say don't touch it are ignoring the obvious. we want medicare to be there for today's seniors and tomorrow's as well. we don't want vouchers or to privatize it it. we can make meaningful reforms in medicare and medicaid without compromising the integrity of the program, making sure the beneficiaries are not paying the price for it, except perhaps the high income beneficiaries. that's a reasonable approach. let me salutes lindsey graham. when he just said about revenue and taxes needs to be said on his side of the aisle. we need to put everything on the table. >> does that include raising the age for medicare e

in durban is even beyond the spending cut and i haven't agree to anything. i just talk about tax increase. said senator committee think it's possible german suspect the democratic caucus and says that these imaginary and cuts on the table and seven at tom coburn says he never be that dishonest. i think he is any think you're not and i think he seriously and you should not take him seriously. they spent more than a year putting the simpson/bowles commission, which if you've seen it is a fight temptation. it's an outline, a haiku. the only numbers are in the page numbers. it is a series of interesting things. there's specific about tax burden from 18.5% of full employment to 21 q. that is effectual in dollars tax increase. it's 2.5% of gdp. sci-fi dollars in tax increases. plus as ryan reid it's a trillion dollars in tax increases from eliminating or reducing reductions in exemptions and someone. balmy seaside in addition. i don't read that in the affidavit as simpson holes, but ryan was in discussions and i wasn't. if you were $5 tax increase with a million specified in the rest not worth

dick durban, one of the leaders in the senate changed his position and said they shoe not be part of any negotiations and short-term deal that would be entered into during the lame duck session. this is a good step in the right direction. i think that ultimately we need to take the high road here. we need to assume that we can win on this, act like we can win, and show the president, and show democrats and congress-- >> cenk: i got to wrap it up. >> that we have their backs. >> cenk: no, you have to do the exact opposite. that's what i'm getting at. yes, you fight beforehand. don't be pessimistic like me. they've done great things with social security. they got it off the table. great job but don't tell the democrats that you have their back. that encourages obama to say i don't have to worry about alan. alan is a pushover. he'll clap louder. don't do that. tell him you're going to kick his ass. >> when i say have their backs i mean it in the firm sense of pushing them hard to live up to the commitments that they made to the american people. >> cenk: i hope you do. i'll have to ha
